Week 5

Edge Shot
This was taken when we were at Bannack and I really liked it, I actually did an HDR edit on it and then refined it with a burned edge...I really like to put a black edged effect on shots, it makes them more fun.

Night Shots
This week was really fun. I had the opportunity to go to Utah this weekend and shoot with my friends Selena and Russ. I got to use Selena's Canon EOS 5D, which was really fun. What we did in these shots was set up the camera on a tripod and had the camera set on the bulb setting, with the aperature set on 9...we had a shutter trigger and took maybe 10 to 15 seconds to pull it for every shot. Most shots we used a flash or flash light with colored filters to produce fun colors and get more contrasts into the shot. We also used the flashlight to flash me every few seconds so that I can have the ghost effect with the truck shot. If you look closely you can see that the tree in the background is red, thanks to my friend Russ for shinning his flashlight with a red gave it a cool effect. My friends live down in Orem and knew where this cool old Sinclair gas station was, I was thankful because we took some fun pictures there. I think that they turned out quite nicely.

I love vintage, the gas pumps and car is great, but my favorite is old trucks.
